Detroit man charged in bus driver attack
Detroit — A Detroit man was charged Sunday in connection with the assault and unarmed robbery of a bus driver last week while the driver was dropping off children in Detroit.
Reshawn Clark, 23, was charged with unarmed robbery, and assault and battery.
Clark was taken into custody after he turned himself in to Detroit police on Friday. He was arraigned Monday at Detroit's 36th District Court and was given a $50,000 cash or surety bond. He's due back in court on Feb. 12 for his preliminary exam, before Judge Ronald Giles.
The incident occurred on Jan. 25 in the area of Asbury Park and Diversey, Detroit police said.
The bus driver, identified by teachers as Rebhi Mohammed from Grand Blanc, was driving a bus route for the Multicultural Academy in Pittsfield Township with students on their way to an activity in Detroit.
At 3:23 p.m., Mohammed, 63, allegedly grazed the side of a car and accidentally broke the car's mirror, according to a GoFundMe page. When he stopped to let some kids off, the two men boarded the charter school bus and began hitting him.
The GoFundMe page shows $22,000 has been raised.
No further information was provided on the second suspect in the assault.
